Where Monsters Dwell came to a close last week with its fifth issue.  Karl found himself in a predicament where he needed a few very important parts in order to get his plane flying again.  In this issue, he needs to get the parts back to his plane in order to escape from the tribe of Amazons.  Ennis finishes up the story nicely here, with a little bit of humor injected into some pretty dark and serious scenes.  It makes us wonder which of the characters in this story is the hero and which is the villain, and in the end, which one will ultimately have the last laugh.  There were a few moments that made me laugh out loud, but overall this was a relatively serious story.  Braun’s artwork is solid.  A little cartoony in spots, but just serious enough to be taken seriously.  This issue also has a lot of facial close ups that display his skill at drawing emotions into a character’s expressions.  This series was easily one of the best Secret Wars tie-ins, and I would highly recommend it if you’re into dark comedy stories.
